I need to make some major changes to my diet. I know I need to eat more fruits and vegetables, less refined sweets, blah, blah, blah…
I am looking for a plan that won’t take a lot of extra time, other than basic meal planning. I know counting calories or Weight Watchers points works (and has for me in the past), yet I don’t want to record every single thing I eat.
I am looking for a plan that my husband and kids will also follow…or at least eat the meals I prepare without too much complaining. Hubby loves his meat (we have beef cattle), so it needs to be a plan that incorporates meat. Or something that I can fill up on the rest of the meal and let everyone else eat the meat.
I am looking for a plan that promotes healthy eating…something I can follow for the rest of my life.
I need a plan that won’t cost any extra money. I would love to be able to buy all-natural and organic foods, but my pocketbook cannot handle that right now.
For the first time ever, I am actually considering clean eating. I would have to take it in baby steps. If I try this, does anyone have advice on how to begin? I have already cut out most processed, boxed meals.
I know I will “cheat”. I will never follow a plan 100% of the time. I like my treats too much, and to give them up completely would be self-sabotage. I am going into this with realistic expectations. I’m really just looking for something healthy that’s relatively easy to follow. Well, as easy as any major diet changes can be.
Any tips or advice? I welcome all comments and suggestions!
